Research interests include energy storage and electrochemical catalysis fields. The primary research interest focuses on rechargeable batteries such as Li-ion, Na-ion, K-ion, dual-ion batteries, lithium sulfur batteries, multivalent-metal batteries, aqueous batteries and all-solid-state batteries. Our group will develop new materials and new chemistries for high performance and sustainable energy storage devices.
Dr. Luo teaches the modern polymer chemistry course (CHEM 613). He has more than 6 years of experience in teaching and advising students in STEM.
